OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma State Department of Health says the number of people who have died due to the flu in Oklahoma rose by eight this week to 20.

The department on Thursday reported four deaths in Tulsa County, three in Comanche County and two in Muskogee County. Single deaths were reported in Carter; Cleveland; Kay; Le Flore; McClain; McIntosh; Oklahoma; Okmulgee; Osage; Pittsburg; and Seminole counties.
